Mind Control is a blend of reggae, rock, R&B, nyabinghi rhythms, flamenco and hip-hop.
Stephen Marley, first appeared on record in 1979 at the tender age of six when he and his younger brother Ziggy recorded the single "Children Playing in the Streets," for charity with the profits going to the United Nations to aid efforts during the International Year of the Child. The single would also mark the beginnings of the Ziggy-fronted Melody Makers, a band that included Stephen and his other siblings. Stephen played a supportive role in the Melody Makers from the beginning as guitarist, singer, and occasional songwriter and would go on to work behind the scenes in production. Over the course of his career, Stephen has worked with Eve, Krayzie Bone and Erykah Badu.
In 2001, his production work for brother Damian's Halfway Tree helped win the Grammy for Best Reggae Album. In the year 2006, Stephen scored his fifth GRAMMY award for his co-production work on brother Damian “Jr.Gong” Marley’s acclaimed RIAA certified Gold disc Welcome To Jamrock, garnering him more GRAMMY awards than any other Reggae artist in history.
Mind Control is Stephen’s highly anticipated debut album, placing him center stage for the first time in his 27 year career.
